PFLP on the second anniversary of the loss of Al-Hakim: Revolutionaries never die!

The following is from the website of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine:

On the second anniversary of the loss of Al-Hakim, Dr. George Habash, the founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Arab Nationalist Movement, the Front pledged to remain on the path and fulfill the goals of Al-Hakim and all of the martyrs of our people and our nation, until return and liberation, on the path of democracy, justice and unity, pledging that revolutionaries never die – and that the example of Al-Hakim as a thinker, organizer, and revolutionary leader will live on immortally in Palestine, the Arab nation and internationally.

In the Front’s statement, issued on January 26, 2010, the PFLP said that Al-Hakim was a historic leader who lit a flame in the darkness of occupation, aggression and oppression, the flame of popular revolution and the path of freedom that shatters the shackles of dependency and hegemony, raising the banner of resistance and unity as the only path for the restoration of our land and our freedom.

PFLP: So-called “settlement freeze” is merely a deceptive cover for settlement building and war crimes

The following is from the website of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine:

Comrade Jamil Mizher, a member of the Central Committee of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, said that the so-called “settlement freeze” announced by the fascist Netanyahu regime is simply a tactic meant to deceive the world and attempt to cover up the war crimes of the occupation.

Furthermore, Comrade Mizher said on December 3, 2009 in his interview with Jerusalem Net News Agency, the position of the United States on the so-called “settlement freeze” is simply the continuation of its scandalous and notorious firm strategic alliance with the Zionist occupation. He demanded that the Palestinian Authority stop all forms of direct or indirect “negotiations” with the occupier, saying that such meetings and negotiations, as always, only provide a veneer of legitimacy to the criminal occupation regime.

PFLP 5th Conference (1993) document now online

5th-congressThe following is from the website of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a Marxist-Leninist organization leading an armed national liberation struggle against U.S./Israeli occupation:

The Fifth Coference of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine took place in February 1993.  As part of our effort to provide online, searchable access to the major documents of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine we are presenting the full English text of the general report of the Conference.

The Conference came only months before the Palestinian cause faced a new era of momentous challenges with the betrayal of Oslo, signed in September 1993. It followed on the heels of the great Intifada of 1987, and also at a time when our movement confronted the crisis of socialism internationally and the fall of the Soviet Union and the European socialist bloc, the Gulf War, and the new era of U.S. imperial domination.

This valuable and important document explores the fundamental political outlook and commitment of the Front, as well as presenting a clear picture of the situation of the day.

Ali Abunimah: Israel lurches into fascism

Whenever Israel has an election, pundits begin the usual refrain that hopes for peace depend on the “peace camp” — formerly represented by the Labor party, but now by Tzipi Livni’s Kadima — prevailing over the anti-peace right, led by the Likud.

This has never been true, and makes even less sense as Israeli parties begin coalition talks after Tuesday’s election. Yes, the “peace camp” helped launch the “peace process,” but it did much more to undermine the chances for a just settlement.
